Zoom Setup Help for Online Music Lessons

Below is some information about how to get ready for your Online Music Lesson with Key Music Australia via ZOOM.

How do I access my ZOOM Online Music Lesson?

  • Once you have ZOOM on your device, CLICK the link found in your confirmation email. It will look like this Eg. https://us04web.zoom.us/j/1234567890. This will take you straight to your tutor’s Online Music Lesson Waiting Room. You will not be able to enter the room until the tutor admits you in. It is likely that they will have a lesson before your lesson.
  • You can also enter your lesson by clicking the JOIN button on ZOOM. You will need to enter the Meeting ID which is also found in your confirmation email.
Click the JOIN button
Enter the Meeting ID and your Child’s Name then click JOIN

When should I enter the Waiting Room?

  • We recommend that you click on the link to enter the waiting room a few minutes before your lesson time.

Tips for Setting Up your Online Music Lessons space at home

  • A laptop is the most suitable device for Online Music Lessons as it has the biggest screen and the camera can be moved up and down easily for positioning.
  • A tablet or phone can be used.
  • Position the device so that the tutor will be able to see the instrument and face of the student.
  • In most cases having the device facing the student “side on” will be best.
  • Louder instruments should never be pointing directly at the device, as the sound will distort and this could negatively impact the lesson.
